Here's a list I made years & years ago that should complement your own: Genesis 1:28-30 Leviticus 19:26 Numbers 11:18-20 Numbers 11:31-34 Deuteronomy 5:17 Exodus 20:13 Psalm 78: 27 & 29-31 Proverbs 12: 10-11 Proverbs 15:17 Proverbs 23:19-20 Isaiah 1: 11-16 Isaiah 7:14-15 Isaiah 11:7 Isaiah 66:2-3 Daniel 1 Zechariah 9:7 Matthew 5:21 Romans 14:21 Romans 12:1-2 1 Corinthians 8:13 There is much more to support & encourage us to maintain a strictly vegetarian diet.
